Dental Inlays & Onlays Q & A

What are Dental Inlays & Onlays?

Simple stated an inlay or an onlay procedure is less extensive than a dental crown. While it’s true that inlays and onlays require more work than a dental filling, the fact that they are more cost-effective for patients than a crown often makes them a winning choice. Also, less tooth material is removed during an inlay or an onlay procedure than a traditional crown procedure which makes them a more conservative treatment alternative.

What are the benefits of Dental Inlays & Onlays

Minimal Pain Involved in Inlay and Onlay Treatment

We’ve found that most patients are able to resume their normal activities after an inlay or onlay procedure since there is minimal pain involved in treatment and it can be managed with local anesthesia. Any residual pain can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain medications.

Another Benefit to Inlays and Onlays

As mentioned, dental inlays and onlays are used on teeth that have too much damage to benefit from a traditional filling. But an added benefit over a traditional filling is that inlays and onlays are comprised of materials that are much stronger than those used in fillings. With proper care, an inlay or onlay can last for up to 30 years or longer.
